the rights of the unborn. today we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of roe v wade. i do not know if you have anyone speaking on that topic, but we believe that the 50 million unborn human beings that were killed in the atrocity of abortion should be as important as slavery was back in the time of abraham lincoln. it is the right of everyone to have life and liberty. these unborn babies across the country are being killed. we have a pro-life charity and we are trying to call to attention a look at these innocent little ones and an urge for these women to choose life. over 50% of americans are pro- life now, that should be the number-one topic. you should be talking about a personhood amendment, just like lincoln talked about freeing the slaves. host: we will be talking about the agenda for the second term in the last half of "washington journal" this morning. we will talk about whether there could be another contraception fight like in the first term. the front page of "the washington times" this morning is on the abortion battle. an estimated total of 54 million pregnancies have been te
want to conclude today, since this week marks the 40th anniversary of the landmark case of roe v. wade, those of us who have been involved as a lawyer trying cases, civil cases such as roe v. wade was a civil case, those of us that have been involved as a judge as i was also a chief justice, we know that in order for a case to be right, that it can be heard in court, there must be a judiciable issue, such as in roe v. wade, but the person bringing the case has standing to bring the case, took years but we ultimately find out that at the time there was no standing. we find out from the person who was roe, fictitious name, she deeply regrets what had happened and that case has been responsible for the killing of millions of lives. and i have so many dear friends on the democratic side of the aisle, i know their hearts. they don't want people to get killed. they care about life. and so many on both sides of the aisle talk about trying to protect, quote, the most vulnerable among us, unquote. i would humbly submit there is no one more vulnerable than an unborn child. there is that chord th
wade decision. charlie joins us from new york, on the republican line. caller: good morning. one morning, the first sergeant announced there were eliminations from the pt test. women could not do it. if you cannot pass your pt test, you cannot be promoted. do not give me the lie that standards are not going to be lowered. they will be. the problem is, we no longer have generals like george patton, matthew ridgway, curtis lemay, and douglas macarthur. that is the problem. host:, for the call, charlie. this is a headline based on the report looking at the issue of sexual harassment in the military and the focus of airforce leaders focusing on culture -- yesterday, general dempsey was asked about that culture of seco -- sexual harassment in the military. this is a portion of what he had to say. >> i believe it is because we have had separate classes of military personnel, at some level. it is far more complicated than that. when you had one part of the population that is designated as warriors, and another part that is designated as something else, i think that disparity begins to e
to commemorate the 40th anniversary of row v. wade, the landmark supreme court decision that formally recognized the woman's right regarding decisions on her reproductive health care. this came as a result of decades of relentless activism and litigation on the part of great women advocates. but today there are those that want to roll back those fundamental rights and turn back the clock on women's health care. we've seen them use the same tactics over and over again during the last 40 years. in fact, according to an institute, more than 40 laws were passed to restrict access to abortion in 19 states just this past year. that's why as we commemorate the 40th anniversary of roe v. wade, it's more important than ever to commit ourselves to protecting these basic rights and ensure that women across our country have full control over their personal well-being and health and retain access to health care they require. thank you and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from california seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address th
and the gay-rights movement, could make this a mistake that we made four years ago with roe v wade, that we did not allow the democratic process, the legislative process, the social process of debate and acceptance and so on to run its course. we trust that with a ruling by the supreme court and we have been in the streets for over four years and probably will be for another 40 because we did not allow the legislative process to continue. if you did speak to those, thank you very much. guest: on the recess appointments -- host: what was the decision the caller was referring to? guest: the president's appointments during a recess period or unconstitutional. he waited for congress to be out for a couple of days and pushed through four confrontation -- controversial appointments to the new labor relations board and of -- and it includes the cordray appointment. the recess appointment clause was created for a different purpose. when i testified in congress, i said i believe that all these recess appointments or unconstitutional. the court of appeals actually agrees with that position. it unanim

that the estimates are 50 to 55 million unborn americans have been aborted since roe v. wade was decided. it is true of those who are at the end of their live who is will be treated under obamacare. i think it can lead to a disrespect for life more broadly. i think we need to do everything to infiltrate the respect for life which, frankly has been growing to the surprise of many. public opinion is moving toward the pro life direction in recent years. i think hopefully it will continue to move in that direction. i don't think it is a alba tross around our necks. if you look in swing districts where republicans lost. they did not lose because they were pro life. they lost because, you know, votes on taxes or spending or regulations or so forth. it is very rare to find republican politician who is have lost because they are pro life, i think. >> let's glance in on gay marriage. people say like us, you have to give up your view of marriage if you want to win another election. do you think they have a point? >> i don't think they do. i'm a supporter of traditional marriage. that is not disrespect for gay
